6 Father’s Day Gift Ideas for Your Sports Dad
1. A Relaxation & Recovery Session at R3
Dad is the hardest working guy you know, and it’s about time he indulges in a relaxing recovery session at R3. By gifting him a gift card to R3, he can choose to undergo local or full body cryotherapy which stimulates the body’s natural responses, reduces pain, promotes weight loss and reduces inflammation; or he could utilize pneumatic compression sleeves to increase blood flow and reduce pain. He could also utilize infrared sauna treatment to detoxify, lose weight, and purify his skin -- not to mention, he could finish up his session with specialty coffee, fresh juices, or a smoothie from the R3 juice bar. What better gift than the gift of a healthy lifestyle?
2. Sports Sunglasses
Surfing, cycling, golfing, baseball, fishing, watersports, target & hunting, mountain trail hiking… You name the outdoor sport dad partakes in, and Oakley has you covered! Gift your active dad with a pair of sleek, stylish and functional sunglasses to help him be his best -- he will definitely appreciate the thought behind the gift.
3. The Most Comfortable Shirt He Will Ever Wear
Give dad’s t-shirt game a serious upgrade with this Lululemon 5 Year Basic Tee, and he will be throwing out all those ragged t-shirts from his college days in no time. Soft and lightweight, this sporty v-neck is made with High-stretch Vitasea™ fabric so it will retain its shape no matter which direction it gets pulled.
4. New Running Shoes
Help dad kick things up a gear with a new pair of running shoes. Hoka One One makes high-tech sneakers specifically designed for a variety of activities including road running, trial running, hiking, gym & fitness, walking and even recovery sandals. Prices range from $50 to $230 so there is something for every dad and every budget!
5. Yeti Rambler
Give dad a 36oz YETI Rambler Bottle that will keep his drink piping hot or ice cold for every occasion. This rambler is the perfect companion for his camping trips, hiking excursions, workouts (indoors or outdoors!), or even to sip on as he relaxes on the sidelines at your child’s soccer game this summer. Looking for something bigger? Opt for the YETI Half Gallon or YETI One Gallon jug for the dad who’s serious about his hydration.
6. Sock Subscription
Giving your dad a pair of socks for Father’s Day shows him you put little thought into his gift. Giving your dad a Stance Sock Subscription shows him you put a lot of thought and creativity into his gift! Stance socks are high-quality, stylish socks with trendy and sleek designs for every taste. You can choose either a monthly or quarterly sock subscription that gets delivered to him on a regular basis…The gift that keeps on giving!
